We lived in Trinidad for a few years and loved the local spicy food, so we were so happy to find Tara’s shop. Her homemade roti and pelau are excellent, but our favorite is her doubles, so flavorful and just as good as we got...More

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of this restaurant. If you love spice and homestyle authentic Trini food you must go visit Tara! She has been in business for over 28 years and the location is very close to Busch Gardens. The flavor of...More

This places seems extremely unhygienic..sticky tables, prepackaged food that wasn't sealed, just generally icky. Stood at the counter for about 15 minutes on a Saturday at 6pm. There were about 5 other people in the entire place. Waited for someone to take my order. After...More

I've been here with my daughter who lived in Trinidad. She tells me this is very much like the local food she ate in Trinidad. All I know is I've enjoyed it! It's a completely different taste from anything else I've tried. This is definitely...More
